KOMPAK (Governance for Growth) is a facility funded by the Government of Australia to support the Government of Indonesia in achieving its poverty reduction targets and addressing inequality. KOMPAK started in January 2015 with the first phase running until June 2018. DFAT approved the continuation phase for KOMPAK for the period of 2019 to 2022. Its current end date is 30 June 2022 with a total commitment of up to A$178 million.
KOMPAK is committed to working at all levels of government to find solutions for the most important challenges faced in delivering basic services and promoting livelihoods for the people of Indonesia. Our network of expertise stretches to seven provinces and the central ministries where we identify constraints, pilot and test innovative approaches, and provide expert advice, research and support to government partners to shape direction, build capabilities, and support execution for sustainable results.
KOMPAK’s goal is to help the poor and vulnerable benefit from improved delivery of basic services and economic opportunities. To achieve this, we support initiatives that will improve the capabilities of sub-national government – at the national, provincial, district, sub-district and village levels – to manage and deliver basic civil registration, health and education services and create an enabling environment for local economic development. Integral to this is strong development planning and coordination, effective and inclusive local governments, and performance-oriented and efficient public financial management systems.
